Insurance Law/roof patch versus replace


Retired P/C Insurance Agent, KY wrote at 2013-02-04 16:48:12
I have done a fair amount or searching in the KARs (KY Insurance Statutes) and an HO3 insurance contract.  I do not find this term in either.  To summaryize, "Line of Sight" means, if I stand in this position, what do I see? (My Opinion) "Line of Sight", is a Survey Term that I hear a lot of Adjusters use.  While doing my research on this term, I find it most referred to in reference to interior damage, as opposed to expterior damage.  I will say I am currently involved in a claim, as a contractor, for exterior siding replacement and the Insurance Company is attempting to use this to only replace the elevation of the house.  I am at this point not sure it actually applies in the law or Insurance Contracts in KY.

My areas of expertise involve property and casualty issues in both residential and commercial policies with regards to claims practices and issues. I deal extensively with Lloyd's of London commercial policies and various domestic carriers for residential policies.


After a 20 year career as a General Contractor, I was employed by Allstate Insurance as an adjuster in Texas, holding various postitions within the property claims department. After leaving Allstate, I specialized in handling losses associated with major catastrophes through-out the country. (Hurricanes Isabel, Charlie, Wilma, Katrina, Ike, etc., hail storms, floods.) I am currently retained as an expert by multiple insurance defense firms in Texas for issues in litigation. I am also a certified Umpire for formal appraisals.
